..or what to do with Lego on a rainy weekend to amuse the kids.
Lego 851 Tractor
My first Technical Lego kit I ever got my hands on as an 8 year old was the 851 tractor. I can still recall looking at it in the Toy shop window and really wanting it for Christmas. I’ve still got the kit, box, instructions and all the parts.
It features real working rack-an-pinion steering through a universal joint and power transmission to tools. The tools can be attached to the rear of the tractor and raised/lowered via a lever on the right of side of steering wheel. A true classic Technical Lego model.
